Mid-Week Rant: Bill Burr & Marc Maron

NSFW for language 

This is really harsh at points so it gave me pause from posting it in the MWR. We decided to post anyway, but I have just a couple of comments to preface this. I personally don’t like everything they say and you can hear the criticisms of their tone and their generalizations coming from a mile away. However, you have to remember that a lot of people really do believe and act the way they describe and that is what they are mocking. Religious apologists and theologians have complex (and convoluted) rationalizations and arguments, but the average layperson in a religion does not. There are many that go to church on Sunday and don’t think about it the other 167 hours of their week. Others, however, really are just like how Burr and Maron describe. The criticism may be harsh, but it is not wrong
